I miss Phil showing us details about the country they were presently in at the Pit Start instead of random unnecessary eat, sleep, mingle moments =/

I thought in the early seasons, they showed a little bit of the "in between" stuff. Maybe I'm wrong in thinking that?

I like how they were able to show both in the past. :( I'm learning more with Phil's narration on the nation's history and culture though.

They did sometimes, but never at the expense of Phil talking about the location. And when we did see it, it would be part of a storyline, like Reichert and Chip coming out to the remaining teams or Alex getting together with Tara

I hate it when hosts of other versions or Phil in some recent seasons say "You're the xth team to arrive" to announce placements instead of the tried and true "You're team number x!". At this point I'm Pavlovian conditioned to expect a "but..." when they do that and it just really throws me off.

Damn, I hate it when Phil is like "(team name here) is standing right behind me grabbing their next clue for a De-Tour", I mean just explain the De-Tour and go away
I totally agree with this. I don't want to hear NFL-style play-by-play announcements on the show. It's a distraction.
I like to think that this segment took away the calling of all Pit Stop placements. :groan:
This needs a bump, because when the live commentary was implemented (& placements started to rarely be called out), I started to dislike Phil as a host.

Phil has still been an awesome host and definitely my favorite of the big three. (Phil>>>>>>>Chenbot>>>>>>>J*ff Pr*bst).

The live commentary is forced but if that's what they make Phil do, then =/

The secret scenes still rock though, especially at the Pit Stop, it's still so much fun to see Phil throw out random quips and questions and talk with the teams!

Yeah, I don't care for the live commentary, either. Phil in recent seasons is becoming a lot more stiff and forced compared to how he used to be, and obviously production tells him what to say.

Regarding the bold: Heh. What are the asterisks for?

It's a very dramatic way of hinting that you hate someone :lol:

No lol? Jeff's apparent misogyny (come on, everytime a guy does well they air his comment saying X in the lead ready to win and then if a girl does well he goes "SHOCKER!!! WILL [INSERT MALE CONTESTANT FORMERLY IN LEAD] CATCH UP???") and blatant favoritism sucks.

But let's move on bc this is about TAR =P

To add something to the TAR conversation, I really dislike it when teams intentionally bicker with each other just to get airtime or try to be funny. Being natural is the way to go on the Race.

Like... Tim & Marie? I HATED them in the beginning of their Race because of their """""Bickering"""""
Phil would be like "Tim & Marie FOUGHT!"
Marie in the most forced way: "I didn't know they made people as dumb as you!"

But... who are you talking about? :lol:

My pet peeve would have to be boring/linear final legs. STOP putting that one "extreme" task in every final leg.

Yeah, I meant Tim & Marie at the start :lol:

I loved them but let's be real, a lot of it was forced.

Seeing a landslide victory just like tonight.  Compare that with Bates and Anthony in the final leg of TAR22.

Yeah I know! Sometimes they work like in S26 I thought the tasks were really cool! But look at Season 27's finale it was amazing! Was there an extreme task... No! (Unless you count the fireman roadblock)
